McLaren wins race to secure £23m plans in Aldershot

Train4TradeSkills Blog Westgate AldershotPlans to redevelop Aldershot town centre are going ahead as McLaren construction have secured pole position and won a £23 million contract to develop Westgate shopping centre in the town.

McLaren reportedly beat strong competition from construction competitors like John Sisk, Willmott Dixon and Bowmer &Kirkland to lead the mixed-use scheme, which is due to begin next month.

The plans, which are being delivered by developer Citygrove, will see a new multi-screen Cineworld cinema built, along with 8 restaurants, which include a Pizza Express, Prezzo and Frankie & Benny’s. A new hotel, supermarket and car parking facilities will also be built.

The work will take around a year to complete and demolition work is expected to take place next month.

The project is likely to create new construction jobs in the Aldershot area for plumbing, electrical and gas contractors.
